    Jacket with name and GBR - no problem - in fact useful as Cesh said.

    Stripes, why bother? They are just a pain either costly to buy or awkward to sew on.

    I have always given a beat into the forte on the outside line as a parry riposte to the opponent. Basically a beat should deflect the blade and a parry should defend a line. A beat in the bottom...

    I admit to being no sabre coach, but it looked a bit like rock, paper, scissors to decide who got the hit half the time. I've watched the last hit 4 times and i still have no clue!!

    Hugely agree about the spacing and task. Competitions MUST get this right or it is unsafe and impossible to referee. There are some major events I could name where the refereeing space for two...

    But there is a like between performance of referees and respect for their decisions.

    There are referees who end up being asked by organisers to referee well outside their comfort zone, either in...

    You can call it talent or aptitude or whatever you like, but some people pick up a sport quicker than others and have a feeling for the tactical nuances without being taught them.

    New Laptop

    In the near future I am going to have to get my own laptop rather than using a work one.

    I am wanting to get one with an SSD for speed and durability and I want to be as future proofed as possible...

    The Women's Final was very exciting, going right to the wire. Cambridge victories in the Sabre (8 hits) and Epee (1 hit) left Edinburgh needing to win by 10 clear hits in the foil for a victory. With...

    You're right John - incidentally, I had overlooked that the USA were absent, so in fact the seedings were rather askew at the weekend. That may account for some of the strange results. I mean, Canada...

    Strangely 7,8,9 and 10 seeds will still meet either Russia or Italy in the L8. Even if you avoid them China and Korea are waiting in the wings. At the end of the day, the team have to consistently...

    Still two...

    Great news to see Marcus getting consistency of L64s in the last 3 events.

    Great to see RK back in form winning 6/6.

    Nice to see Jamie coming back. Can't be easy after a long time out.
